Hm, maybe BGs host shows like Pet Factor or Pet Idol TV music competitions solely for the furry friends! Sasha would be perfect as one of the judges! XD
“Babylon Gardens Lassie” would be a three minute show. “Yo, the dumb kid’s in the well again.” (and yes, I know that was never actually a plot on the show).
Actually, now that I think of it, I think Peanut mentions getting tips from a pet version of a make-over show back when he was helping Grape get ready for a date with Max.
Alt Text: I wonder if he squeaks when you hug him!
Only that squeaky voice X3
nobody can take him seriously with a voice like that •◘•
I sure can’t :3
Not that the ferrets have better voices (continuity!)
The ferrets are at least a full half octive lower!
the mice voice must be more squeaky.
inner thought (wonder if Grape would eat Alan)
She’s only ate one being so far <.<
The bird doesn't count, it wasn't onscreen <.<
I’m sure she’s had her share of between comic snacks. I love her line in “Lets Imaginate: Guys and Dolls” — “Hooray! The mission is saved! And it looks scrumptious!”
Yes, to the mice Alan probably has a deep sexy baritone… they must be the majority of his fanbase.
Oh, my, half an octave? That’s a tritone! They must sound jarring together.
The ferrets’ money does the speaking for them
For those with bad memories: http://www.housepetscomic.com/2010/11/19/serious-business/
I always have trouble remembering that everyone’s voices are supposed to be kid or high-pitched.
What about Itsuki…I guess he’d have an slightly lower voice being slightly older than most of the pets…as well as Uncle Reuben.
Housepets has not failed to add to my collection of dream-scaring smiles.
Could this be what became of John Edwards after his political life fell apart??
heheh but seriously that would be really annoying for them, funny for us though.
“Hahaha he has a squeaky voice”. Really dude? is that all your worried about Mr. Tv host guy?
“Entertainment Tonight” hosts/reporters aren’t known for their in-depth interviews
Are we totally sure that ET stands for Entertainment Tonight? Looking at that guys face, it could just as well stand for ExtraTerrestrial.
Either that or he’s a former used car salesman.
…could he be Delusional Steve’s former owner???
Bomp bomp bommmmmmmmmmp.
not to burst the bubble, but the text bubble (no relation to the aforementioned metaphorical bubble) in the first panel says “entertainment tonight,” so i’m guessing we’re safe to say it’s entertainment tonight… just a technicality
awwwww….. Poor Steve, loses the game again.
Now Alan is going appear on The Soup! :3
Or in the soup if Argent has anything to say about it.
If Lana doesn’t get to him first.
Isn’t that Duke? Unless Lana shaved her eyelashes.
According to the tags it’s Lana.
I think she’s the off screen announcer.
OK, yeh, they both have the panda coloring, but Lana’s got a lighter body.
So, did Alan sing the song as a solo act or did the others sing back-up? I was thinking he was doing it as a solo, but the announcer mentions the group name without saying something like “Formally of”.
Dude, you can’t split up the Ground Squirrels.
But they’re too much for one meal.
lol nice paraday of wait whats that movies name ahh alven and the chipmunks one question though what was that arc that grape and peanut went to the mall and movie?
Arc #53: The Mall.
………… shoulda looked i even thought that was the one severel times
I’m pretty sure he wouldn’t like it if he were hugged.
I imagine he might bite.
Try scratching him behind the ears.
squeezed more like
Dang it i always forget about the comic when it comes out
You made it sooner than I did.
So wait is the end of this arc?
I personally doubt it
Yes it is. It wasn’t ever meant to go very in-depth; I’m just doing a bunch of vignettes for a while.
At least you resisted doing the semi obvious show biz joke of the record failing and Rock saying “Let’s do lunch” with the implication that Alan is said lunch.
And then the final straw — VH1 makes a special “Alan & the Ground Squirrels : Behind the Laughter”.
Yay! One-off arcs instead of arcs of one-offs!
Can “Marvin and Tiger: The Miniseries” be far behind?
Teddy D. didn’t even get a line….yet on the other hand, he DID have a cookie the size of his head so I guess it worked out ok for him.
A cookie the size of my head sounds good about now
is this the first time ever in housepet that something has been beep.
and dont laugh at me because i pour 2 min of my life thinking about it!!!
Well, King got cens’d, so it’s not completely unprecidented…
At the dog club after the Catnip prank!
I was thinking of the time when Sabrina came to him with worse news and cosmic horror level news.
My first instinct was to post “Who does this guy think he is, King?” But figured no one would get the meaning.
Speaking of King, I noticed that someone listed Joel as Joel Richardson on the tv tropes page, is this a mistake or was he Retnamed to avoid MST3k jokes?
There’s a lot of blatant errors on that page. It’s a Wiki. You can fix them.
Just wanted to make sure I hadn’t missed something, especially if Rick made it a clear point somewhere that he was changing the name.
Gotta love the way the guy’s copy pasted. Drives home the point that he wears that unnatural expression for the entire show.
Not to mention that unnatual hairpiece. Looks like the Shatner Turbo 2000.
All little critters will go after that human host!
I love the censorship of bad language in HP
Technically, Housepets didn’t censor it this time, a TV program within Housepets censored it.
“Oh, TV….is there nothing you can’t do?” – Homer Simpson.
Would he squeak if you squeezed him, cause if he did that’d be hilarious
Well sure that was entretained…
Alt text if you were soo kind please
Alt Text: “I wonder if he squeaks when you hug him!”
Maybe he does lol Squeaks when he swears at you! A’ww
… and squeeze him and call him George…
You win an internet.
and thats how its done XD
thanks for the alt text Garrison
….well time to climb back in the de’lorian and time travel to next week
It’s been a while since we heard a bleep
In the hosts defense, when Alen or any of the groundsquirrels get upset, they start talking incomprehensibly fast. How else can you respond to that?
Giving a cookie to Teddy D would probably quiet him down anyway.
Filling in the Somethings –
“Entertainment Tonight” : As seen in Housepets!
“Entertainment Tonight” : Brought to you by Tum-Bul-Cup and Tish, You! brand tissues.
Vocal coaching might work.
Then we’d have Alen, obviously trying to talk in a deep voice, but still sounding totally high and squeeky. I doubt that would do much to erase his “cute” image.
I think Alan needs to do 4 months as a squirrel exibit in the zoo.
How could this happen to me?
I’ve made my mistaakes,
got nowhere to ruuun, and life goes on…
…it’s unfair in a way,
I’m sick of this life,
I just want to screeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeaaaaaam:
How could this happen to meeeeeeeee~?
I tried sooo haaaard
and got sooo faaaar
but in theee eeend
it doesn’t even maaaatter
Host: Those squeaky-voiced cover songs are much sillier than the original!
Alan: YOU SEE WHAT I MEAN?!
i don’t know, Green Day wouldn’t sound good with squirrels.
at least i think that’s green day >.>
dude linkin park not green day
My girlfriend broke up with me because of my obsession with Linkin Par, but in the end, it doesn’t even matter.
is that untitled by simple plan ?
What would happen if you gave him helium?
Or that anti-helium stuff, whatever it was called?
Good ‘ol Argon. Don’t try it at home.
I picture Alan trying to sing
“Nobody knows the trouble I’ve seen…”
And now you’ve made me picture that scene in TLK where Zazu was in the cage singing /that/ song…then Scar was like “…with a little bounce in it….” and then when Zazu started singing “It’s a small world” he freaks and is like “NO! No, /anything/ but /that/!”
I’ve heard that Sulphur Hexaflouride is pretty heavy. Could that be the “anti-helium”?
That’s the stuff.
They did it in the live-action movie. Their voices get deeper.
Haha that happens.
I would imagine Fred’s Voice saying Alan’s Lines.
for some odd reason…
I thought he was a chipmunk still :p
Something something something tagline!
Still, NOT a Family Guy reference, I’d imagine
AND I’m sent back to that website.
At least its not TVTropes.
Gotta love the squeaky voice
What a jerk host. X3;
He can swear?
Is Alan another avatar? like King?
Nope — only dogs and cats can be avitars.
What do you mean, I’m an aviator!
You win another internet, sir!
Save that outfit in case Rick decides to do a Jay Ward spoof. You could be Spaceship J. Ferret, known to his friends as Spacey.
Since when do planes go to space!!?
In the wacky world of Jay Ward anything is possible. Although I don’t think even he could persuade Bino to portray Boris Binoff with his partner The Dutchess.
Boris Badinoff, with his lovely partner Natasha Nogoodnik.
I know the actual characters names, I was just trying to match up HP! characters to the R&B characters, figuring Bino and the Dutchess for Borris and Natasha.
Awwww he just wants to be taken seriously X3 and awww frumpy shirt
Lol, loving the comics. Keep up the good work Rick
I thought he was supposed to have a good voice! Oh well, guess it all makes sense now. I just had a thought… maybe this will have something to do with a certain cat author later on?
poor guy almost in the same position as britny speers
Funny because it’s true.
I feel… sympathy. I feel bad that no one takes him seriously.
And suddenly, every raging celebrity outburst ever embodied into a half-foot high. Add cuteness for taste. That’s a wrap!
thanks for sharing this information….it is my great pleasure to visit your website i found by music search and to enjoy your excellent post here. god bless you!!!http://www.divulgaemail.com
Finally defeated in his quest to stop everyone from laughing at them, Alan and the band gave up music and starred in the sitcom “2 1/2 Groundsquirrels”.
